First Names Group shortlisted for Trust Company of the Year in 2017 STEP Private Client Awards

13 June 2017

We are pleased to announce that First Names Group has been named as a finalist for ‘Trust Company of the Year (large firm)’ in this year’s STEP Private Client Awards.

The STEP awards are among the most prestigious in the private client industry, recognising and celebrating excellence among private client solicitors/attorneys, accountants, barristers, bankers, trust managers and financial advisors.

Having previously been recognised in 2014 and 2016, this shortlisting marks the third time First Names Group has made it to the final for Trust Company of the Year – though this is the first year that STEP has distinguished between different firm sizes.

Upon receiving the news, Kevin O’Connell, Chief Commercial Officer, commented:

“To once again be shortlisted for Trust Company of the Year, especially in light of the high number of entries submitted, is a great achievement and a real testament to the continuing strength of our business and reputation. I feel very proud and thankful to all of the talented individuals and teams across our Private Client service line, whose hard work and dedication have made this recognition possible. I will be keeping my fingers tightly crossed for a win!”

Winners will now be carefully selected by an independent panel of expert judges and announced at the awards ceremony in London on 6 September 2017.
